Don't forget, a new episode of "Along Came a Spider" airs today and tomorrow on Carton Network.  Apparently, it's a pretty good one!  So, what did you think?

An episode with Elita 1, Energon Cubes, Sentinel Prime, Blackarachnia... Wow, that was outstanding. Amazing! I sure didn't see *that* origin story coming! (lets try to keep spoilers to a minimum, at least until tomorrow, huh?)

Now this episode I liked. It had the same feel to it as "Thrill of the Hunt" did. Anyone notice BA's helmet lying on the ground of the Con ship when Prime first steps inside and sees the Energon cubes and eggs?

So that's why Sentinel hates Optimus.

Having an Autobot rival of Optimus Prime makes for a new and unique dynamic for Transformers cartoons. I like it. Where have we seen Sentinel Prime before? He was supposedly a Matrix carrying predecessor of the G1 Optimus Prime right?

Holy dung!
Now there's an unexpected plot twist!
And Tyscream,promoting other websites on an other website is illegal,just so you know.

Just found something funny, these things are like drugs except they're legal, its a youtube poop:

note: don't watch this unless you have a "stoner" sense of humor because otherwise you'll most likely think its stupid........or have a!

So does this mean that this show takes place in the Beast Wars/Machines universe? Where does the "Armada" trilogy fit in to all this. And what about G1? If this show takes place in the "Beast" universe, why is there no mention of G1 in Animated? I'm so confused.

Elita 1 as Blackarachnia... isnt anyone thinking bout how things like this will affect the Transformers universe?
lord megatron said,  - 2008-02-16 14:39:49
once again,, I didn't get to see this morns episode, I was to busy playing call of duty 4
Rhinox said,  - 2008-02-16 15:32:42
Lord megatron,try to stay on topic please.

And to "?" Animated is a new series,it is not G1,not beast wars.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-02-16 15:33:55
Hey "?", Animated is its own series in its own universe. It has absolutely no connection continuity-wise to any other series. It has references, homages, concepts, and tributes to other series, but it is in its own continuity.

"I don't sound like that. Do I?"
"Count Dracubot".
Funny, but kind of sad. Optimus's version of the episode with Lockdown.
Lupine said,  - 2008-02-16 17:34:35
Am I the only one that thinks Blackarachnia and Armada Wheeljack should form a club?

As for the continuities, Beast Wars and G1 are in the same universe, but the Unicron trilogy is separate.

Finally some more interaction with a Decepticon. That deal with Sentinal and Optimus is finally answered. It looks like Optimus got the shaft over that deal. It looks like the cave in was nobodys fault. Sentinal blamed it on Optimus. Sentinals arrogance had to be what got Optimus demoted. I know Optimus will prove himself in the long run. I hope Arcee returns, I want to see female vs female action.
A bed fed dead-head named Ted said,  - 2008-02-16 17:43:14
HA! Who wouldn't want to see female-female action?!?

Tom cruise

Great episode, and great origin for this Blackarachnia!
Mechaburst said,  - 2008-02-17 07:45:50
I just don't like the plot of Elita-01 Turning evil! But who cares it is are 1st decepticon!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-02-17 07:50:41
No it isn't. First we had Starscream tear up Detroit, then we had Lockdown capture Prime. This is our third Decepticon.

This episode moved me. It was different from what I expected. I never knew that Blackarachnia (who was then known as Elita 1 back then) and Prime were like boyfriend and girlfriend. I did like it also that we saw Prime's dick of a rival Sentinel Prime (who we saw in the first episode if you remember). So for this episode I give an emotional two thumbs way up to Cybertron. Can't wait till the next episode.
hawkeyesol said,  - 2008-02-17 10:35:43
this was the worst episode ive seen so far..... please cartoon network get rid of ur script writers!!!!!! these stories are BADD!!!!!bumblebee trick or treating????????? come on.......
Bass X0 said,  - 2008-02-17 17:30:54
You're in the minority there, hawkeye. Everybody else loves the episode.

And wow - complaining that a kid's show is too kiddy? The trick or treat scenes are the contrast to the flashbacks and the Blackarachnia scenes. Only you have a problem with it.
Yobuster said,  - 2008-02-17 18:43:35
THat was an awesome episode, Black Arachnia being Elita-1 is so unexpected. She looks like a conflicted character. She's decepticon but is not totally evil. That was shown by the way she treat Optimus & her crying in the end.

I also noticed the helmet at the corner of the screen, makes me think that Black Archnia actually has a very hideous organic looking face and not a robot face at all so she needs to use the helmet to cover up.

What do you guys think?
Slashwing said,  - 2008-02-18 09:03:41
I think this is the first time I see a transformer cry.Usually when TFs are sad in other stories it´s all more of silent mourn.But then again this girl has been hurt bad.
this episode proves that the real strength of this series is the writing and I hope they keep it that way.
About the helmet, there is a chance the hideousness she thinks she has is merely the result of the psychological trauma she experimented when mutated.(Come on! BM Blackarachnia had 6 eyes and didn´t loked that bad!)
Slashwing said,  - 2008-02-18 09:06:00
Uh... I think that last part sounds a little like a sensitive Zap Branigan interested in her lol XD.
quickfire said,  - 2008-02-20 10:56:29
actually sabrblade we have seen almost all the decepticons. we haven't seen the constructicons.
quickfire said,  - 2008-02-20 10:59:09
